Sailing to the Stars – star’s end (Cassandra Rose Clarke)

Ahoy there me mateys!  I have previously enjoyed this author's writing (it involved pirates!  Arrr!) so when I saw she had a sci-fi novel out, I snagged it.  Unfortunately while I still love her writing style and ideas, the novel was not a complete success.

Sailing to the Stars – empress of a thousand skies (Rhoda Belleza)

Ahoy there me mateys!  While this book was partly enjoyable, I am not sure that I would read the next in the series.  For starters, the blurb basically misleads the reader . . .

Sailing to the Stars – starflight (Melissa Landers)

Ahoy there me mateys! starflight (Melissa Landers) This was a fun little space romp with romance.  I loved the main character of Solara.  The love interest, Doran, was the perfect jerk guy who comes around to be not so bad.  The eccentric crew is fun.  The ship’s mascot rocks.  The plot did not lead me … Continue reading Sailing to the Stars – starflight (Melissa Landers)
